I found the recipe for this Cranberry-Pineapple upside-down Cake and decided to take the idea of the recipe but completely recreate it with different, healthier ingredients. Instead of regular flour, I used coconut and used honey instead of refined sugar along with many other changes I also subbed in lemon zest for the pineapple and decided to top off the cake with Homemade lemon curd! This Cake is perfect for Christmas morning breakfast, dessert, or an anytime snack!
